MP: Woman Alleges Gang-Rape By Cops in Jail

BHOPAL: A 20-year-old woman has alleged that she was kept in a lock up and raped for 10 days in May this year by five police personnel, including the police station in-charge and sub-divisional police officer, in Mangawan of MP’s Rewa district.

The woman is an accused in a murder case and is now in jail custody. She made the explosive allegation before an additional district judge and a team of lawyers when they had gone to inspect the prison on October 10.

The district judge then ordered a judicial inquiry and write to the Rewa SP Rakesh Singh to take action. The SP said he was yet to get the letter from the court.

“She is a murder accused,” he said. The complainant says she was raped between May 9 and May 21, while police say she was arrested on May 21, around five days after a woman named Sudha Verma was murdered in a village in Mangawan police station jurisdiction.
